This information sheet is designed for anyone who wishes to find as focused and up to date an estimate as possible of missing people within a certain area of the UK.
The regional statistics are presented, area by area, using data from The Missing Persons Bureau Annual Data Reports from 2009-10 to 2014-15. These statistics, which are given in graph form, are supplemented by numbers of missing people given in newspaper articles (complete with link to newspaper) on the web for a particular area or city. Often these numbers were found out in a freedom of information request by the journalist.
